Battery know-how

Good morning,

I'm completely new to the e.bike scene, and very interested in learning more. My first e.bike will be delivered soon; it is a "Nuke" built by Jake at Reactive Adaptations. I'll use the Falco battery of course, but I want to start learning about putting together additional battery packs, possibly to extend the range, but also I may want to build another bike from scratch.

My question is this: would you mind pointing me to threads in the Bike Forums that will help educate me? If you know of any other resources I would appreciate them too.

Thank you.

Take care, Tom

Do you mean your NUKE uses FALCO ebike drive? I mean FALCO ebike kit?
I visited web site but no mention of electric assist.

Yes, the Falco 500W assist is an option that I ordered. I just got word a few minutes ago that my bike is packed and ready to ship tomorrow!

Can you report here your first impressions on your bike?
Nice high quality rides shown on that web site, pleasure to see.
What kind of warranty do they offer with these 3-wheelers?

I certainly will. It may take awhile, as I'm in a very busy portion of my work year, but as soon as I'm fully comfortable with the bike I'll write a report. I'll be taking it with me on my summertime trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains, and should be able to get in some quality trail time.

The warranty is two years on the frame, one year on parts, and the Falco warranty.
